PRINCETON — Princeton basketball player Ryan Meadows is going to join some elite company within his next few games.
Meadows’ father reported Thursday afternoon that the Princeton point guard was 69 points away from scoring 1,000 points in his career.
When reached by phone, Meadows said it was a blessing from God to be able to score 1,000 points in his Princeton career.
“I can remember being a little kid and just being excited to put on the Princeton jersey,” Meadows said. “It’s really an honor to score 1,000 points in this uniform.”
Meadows also gave credit to his teammates, saying that the Tigers’ inside presence has opened up the perimeter for the guards this season and his teammates have made life on the court easier for him.
One thousand points is not all that Meadows hopes to accomplish this season. He wants to see the Tigers continue to win and eventually make the state tournament.
In his quest for 1,000, Meadows and the Tigers play Thursday night at home in the nightcap of the first day of action in the Alpha Natural Resources Tournament against James Monroe. They return to Ralph Ball Court Friday night for the finale for the finale of the tournament.
Then, the Tigers go on the road to face Cabell Midland on Saturday. They return home Tuesday night against Huntington.
